Dog Areas in Ward

Ward is an extremely small town that was named after Calvin Ward, who searched for minerals, fossils, precious metals, and mineral specimens on the site where the town is now located. This tiny community was the home of Hazel Schmoll, a renowned botanist and the first woman to be awarded a doctorate in botany from the University of Chicago. In the 1950s, Ward had a population of just 10 people, but it gradually grew, and today, its population is fifteen times that, at just 150 people!

In case you get tired of this tiny town and you need an urban environment, head 19 miles east of Wade, where you can find one of the most populous cities in Colorado, Boulder. You can find all the dog-friendly fun you and Fido could pawssibly want here!

Need veterinary care for your pooch? Unfortunately, you won't find it in Wade, but there are plenty of places that will take care of your pup in Boulder. The same goes for restaurants and bars. Your doggo can keep you company in more than 70 dog-friendly lodging accommodations in Boulder! We recommend visiting the extremely dog-welcoming Avery Brewing Company, where you can try different beers and enjoy delicious food while your doggo sits right beside you on the patio!

    If you and your dog love walking and exploring wooded terrains, then you should consider paying a visit to Ceran Saint Vrain Trail. Your doggo will undoubtedly have a good deal of fun on this shaded trail. The 3.5-mile trail goes along the South Saint Vrain Creek, and it's not too difficult to finish. Other than being dog-friendly, the trail is also kid-friendly, so you can make a little adventure out of it for the whole family! If you want more exercise, you can continue to Miller’s Rock, where you can admire the marvelous views! Mountain bikers and horses frequent the trail as well. Don't start the trail without water and poop baggies!

    Another trail in the vicinity of Ward is the Pawnee Pass Trail, located close to Nederland. This trail is much longer than the previous one, around 10 miles, and it's heavily trafficked. Doggies are allowed to accompany you as long as they are on a leash. This trail is also categorized as difficult, so make sure you're up to the challenge before starting! Delightful flowers will lead your way through the trail and among many creeks and brooks. You will also get the chance to see the mesmerizing Lake Isabelle. Bring the essentials with you, including drinking water, poop baggies, and trail snacks.

    #3 Wonderland Lake

    If you're not that into trails and prefer the calmer, safer option of a fenced, off-leash doggie area, head 17 miles east of Ward to the Foothills Community Dog Park. The park is located in North Boulder, and it's a huge area where dogs can run around to their hearts; content. There is a water spigot and even a separate area for smaller pups. Shade and seating are provided for the comfort of the doggie pawrents as well. If you get bored of the fenced area, you can always explore the trails outside of it as long as your pup is leashed.

    #4 Keewayden

    There are those doggos that prefer swimming more than hiking and running in a fenced area. For those precious fur-babies, the East Boulder Dog Park is the place to be! The park has the usual amenities; it's securely fenced and has a small dog and a large dog area. But, as a plus, there is connected fenced area that includes a part of the pond and a little beach in front of it where doggos can go crazy! However, you should bring drinking water with you and waste baggies as well. You can find this place around 23 miles away from Ward, in the Keewayden area of Boulder.

    #5 Chautauqua

    A trail for the experienced hiker hounds that need a steep hike to blow off some steam is the Royal Arch Trail, located a skip and a hop outside Boulder's Chautauqua neighborhood. The hike is 3.2 miles, and it will take approximately 4 hours to finish with your leashed pup. You can access the trail close to South Boulder, around 23 miles away from Ward. Parts of the trail are very steep, so be sure you are prepared with plenty of water for you and your doggo and appropriate attire as well. Another thing you should know is that the trail can get crowded at times with both people and fur-babies, so make sure your pup is comfortable sharing the path.
